Develop the focus, confidence and resilience to grow as a leader and achieve the results that matter to you

When I start working with senior leaders, they feel overwhelmed by the never-ending challenges, pressures and complexities of working in organisations.

Faced with a diary full of meetings, ever-changing targets and limited resources, they lack focus and find themselves stuck in their heads.

They feel like they’re just going through the motions. Failing to connect with their colleagues and not making a difference, despite all their hard work.

And while they feel like this, it saps their energy and they lose confidence in their abilities.  They start overthinking situations and avoid making decisions, afraid of making mistakes.

While they tell themselves they’re ‘doing OK’, deep down they know they’re capable of so much more.

They are.

Imagine the results you could achieve if you felt energised and challenged by your role.

Imagine utilising your strengths, energy and potential on a daily basis. Imagine thriving as a leader and flourishing in every aspect of your life and work.

Think how you would show up with others and have engaging conversations, What would it feel like to be confident in holding others accountable and feel a real sense of achievement at the end of the day?

You were hired for a reason. I’m here to help you rediscover your potential, and your love for your work, so you can achieve results you care about and enjoy the recognition you rightly deserve.

What My Wonderful Clients Say

  • When I started working with Andrea, I had lost my confidence, my sense of purpose and felt disillusioned with my role.

    Andrea was fabulous. She helped me to unpick the exact things that were causing me to be stressed and regain my sense of pride in all I have achieved in my career to date.

    Now I’m mostly back to full strength, happier and more fulfilled. People within my team are clearer about what I expect of them and how they need to perform their duties. I feel as though I have got my work-life ratio much more balanced and my family are happier that I’m happier, too!

    Honestly, my thanks to Andrea. I really don’t think I would still be doing the job if she hadn’t come along when she did.

  • Andrea makes individual coaching sessions challenging and enjoyable and always productive. Her ability to get to the heart of the issue means you are gaining invaluable insight into your own behaviours and drivers and those of others.

    I can honestly say that Andrea has made a tangible difference to the delivery of the services I lead, as well as my own personal effectiveness and direction.

    Many thanks for all your support Andrea, you have given me clarity of thought in chaotic times and during periods of great change within the NHS.

    Jan Wilson, Clinical Lead Musculoskeletal Service, NHS
  • With Andrea’s support, I have developed strengths in managing complex situations and recognised it’s alright to look after oneself in achieving a work life balance as ultimately the service will benefit from a more positive approach.

    What stood out for me in the coaching was the friendliness of the interactions yet with a clear purpose of what was right for me and the service. Andrea helped me discuss my perspective on issues, how they may be viewed by a manager or peer, and worked with me on coping strategies.

    I have started to look at positives in situations and turn that into addressing the negatives in that same situation for an improved outcome.

If I’m sure of anything, it’s this:

Whatever you feel is stopping you from feeling happy and positive or standing in the way of you achieving results - whether it’s your colleagues, your working environment or the culture of your organisation - it isn’t that!

My challenge is always, let’s start with you. My 20 years’ experience of challenging leaders to challenge themselves asks “could you be getting in your own way?”

Change starts with you.

I believe you already have the knowledge and experience to answer your own questions. You just need time, away from all the chaos, where you can focus on you. I help you slow down, confront your ‘home truths’ and start using your strengths.

This won’t always be easy - working with me is not just a coffee and a chat! I’m devoted to challenging leaders to challenge their complacent thinking and habitual behaviours in order to develop and grow.

But, by focusing on how you work and what’s important to you, we can find ways for you to increase your personal effectiveness and start to flourish in your life and work.
